Look global

Here in Hong Kong, there are neither coconuts on the trees nor oil reserves underground. What makes Hong Kong a world city is our pool of talent. Nurturing professionals and promoting our professional services is a very good direction for Hong Kong’s development.

Our professional sectors are becoming more influential both inside and outside the country. One good example is our medical sector.

Yesterday, I attended the Hong Kong International Dental Expo And Symposium 2013 organised by the Hong Kong Dental Association, and witnessed the signing ceremony of the Association as the organiser of the Asia Pacific Dental Congress in 2016. This will be the fourth time since 1984 that a world-class medical academic event has been held in Hong Kong.

In the past year, Hong Kong hosted a number of international medical events, including the 100th FDI Annual World Dental Congress in August last year, as well as the Hospital Authority Convention and ISN World Congress of Nephrology 2013 in May this year. By hosting these events, we linked up the country with the rest of the world while raising the international profile of our medical professionals.

My political team and I have been doing our best to open up the Mainland and overseas markets for our professionals. We will continue to work at the government-to-government level to enhance the status of our professional sectors inside and outside the country, and provide our professionals in various fields with more and better opportunities for career development.
